I have the AP Psych exam in less than a week! I really want to get a 5, but I am so limited on time I am scared this is impossible. Any tips from those who successfully crammed? I just purchased both the PR and Barons for AP psych. Thank you!!

    I haven't taken the exam yet but from what I've gleaned from other people talking about the test here on College Confidential, you can definitely cram and achieve that 5. Princeton Review goes over the main ideas really nicely, so read that first for an overview, and afterwards read through Barrons a few times because it has more details. Good luck!

    @rajpatel123 I'm in your exact same boat. Just read the book and do a bunch of practice!

    I'm in the same position and I've been reading Barron's and answering their questions. My teacher has been giving us practice tests and frqs so we can see what topics we need to revise. I also watch Crash Courses Psychology videos on youtube.

    I have both books, but I self-studied out of Barrons. I would recommend that you look at the personality section in PR because you need to know about the Myers-Briggs personality test which isnt covered in Barrons

    Study definitions I got a five it's all about knowing the words it requires little application you don't even need the review books because it's not like history
